For untold ages almighty God,
You have witnessed the unfolding of creation.
You alone understand the subtleties of sand and time.
When joy has left our hearts,
And our dancing turns to mourning
You are present and you fill us with your grace.
Eternal God, from age to age
We recognize that you remain the same.
Your throne continues from generation to generation.
Restore us O God and bring us back to you.
Fill us with joy once again
And allow us to reside in the comfort of your arms. Amen.
